"RemixeS" is a compilation of Mylène Farmer's singles by various famous DJ. This album was released on December 2003.

Brackground, writing and release

During the summer of 2001, some rumours announced that Farmer and her teams were preparing a new album of remixes, about ten years after the previous one, "Dance Remixes". Finally, Universal decided to produce a CD with 11 remixes produced by French and international famous DJs and remixers to make the fans wait (indeed, they wanted a new studio album)"Mylène Farmer, la part d'ombre", Caroline Bee, Antoine Bioy and Benjamin Thiry, January 2006, Archipel Ed., p. 268] . Officially announced in July 2003, this CD entierely composed of remixes was not appreciated by all Farmer's fans : some thought that the old hits should not be remixed, while others found that the idea of remixing Farmer's successes by the most famous DJs was brilliant"Le Dictionnaire des Chansons de Mylène Farmer", Benoît Cachin, 2006, Tournon Ed., p. 241-242] .

In fact, this album is not really a compilation, because, although the original versions were already released as singles, however, these remixes were then unknown to the general public. Contrary to the album "Dance Remixes", it contains no new title. The artistic direction of this album has been given to Paul Van Parys, Jerome Devoise and Henry Neu. It has been produced at Studios Guillaume Tell, which had already been used for the remix of "s Stuffed Monkey and Requiem Publishing didn't participate in this album.

The very first run of this album was slightly high, with just 200,000 copies. It was originally planned that the album is marketed throughout Europe, the U.S. and Canada"Remixes" [] (Retrieved February 16, 2008)] .

Other remixes had been originally planned, but have not featured on the album: "Sans contrefaçon" and "Pourvu qu'elles soient douces" by Jaïa and Gabriel Masurel (Blue Planet Corporation), "Maman a tort" by Joachim Garraud, and a remix of "Vertige""Le Dictionnaire des Chansons de Mylène Farmer", Benoît Cachin, 2006, Tournon Ed., p. 241-242] .

Critical reception

"Remixes" was not generally well received in the media. For example, the journalist Caroline Bee said that despite the great DJs solicited on this occasion, "the whole struggles to convince"."Mylène Farmer, la part d'ombre", Caroline Bee, Antoine Bioy and Benjamin Thiry, January 2006, Archipel Ed., p. 268] The French magazine "Femme Actuelle" considered that this album of remixes was "disappointing". ["Femme Actuelle" No. 1053, November 29 - December 5, 2004 [] (Retrieved March 7, 2008)]


There were three songs released as singles : first, in August 2003 - four months before the release of the album -, "Sans contrefaçon" (J.C.A. Remix), which was much aired on radio and was a hit in the nightclubs ; then, in November, "Je t'aime mélancolie" (Felix Da Housecat Remix) ; and in January 2004, "L'Instant X" (The X Key Mix by One-T). There was no fourth single although it was originally scheduled. The three singles were released as 12"-Maxi, with which added the promotional CD and vinyls. Sales of these singles were very confidential, since they were released only as vinyls.
